Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given an injury update on striker Marcus Rashford.
Solskjaer had been blamed for risking Rashford in last week’s Cup game against Wolves but the Norwegian has defended himself saying the injury was a new one.
Speaking ahead of their game against Burnley, Solskjaer said: “He won’t be fit for this game that’s for sure he will be out for a while, he’ll get the time he needs to recover, we’re always looking at improving the squad and seeing if there’s anything pout there but nothing I can talk about now.
“He’s not had that injury before, no. He complained a little bit after Burnley, he felt it the first time, and we managed him as well as we could then, he had some days off for treatment, taken off in games and suddenly this was a new injury. He didn’t have any injuries before then.”
In the absence of Rashford, youngster Mason Greenwood is expected to lead the line against Burnley with the manager admitting that he will be forced to use some of the club’s youngsters to fill the void left by the injured players.
